Pretty good soup! I would like to have had some carrots or something in there, too to deepen the flavor profile but it was nice and easy to make.
Nice soup on a cool day. I didn't have enough chicken stock so I added shrimp stock. I added a couple red and yellpw peppers with the onions. With the broccoli & potatoes I added a carrot. I had no cauliflower. All in all, it was still good. Some cheese on top would be a nice touch.
Great soup! The addition of cauliflower and potatoes makes it unique. Thank you.
